Subject [jira] [Updated] (HIVE-9020) When dropping external tables, Hive should not verify whether user has access to the data.
Date Thu, 04 Dec 2014 09:47:13 GMT

Anant Nag updated HIVE-9020:
----------------------------
    Attachment: dropExternal.patch

Hive now doesn't verify whether the user has access to the data while dropping an external
table. It also checks now whether the user is the owner of the table before dropping it.

> When dropping tables, hive verifies whether the user has access to the data on hdfs.
It fails, if user doesn't have access. It makes sense for internal tables since the data has
to be deleted when dropping internal tables but for external tables, Hive should not check
for data access.
